FlagOnce Posted November 4, 2015 Report Share Posted November 4, 2015 Some talks often here about the usage of English words in other language. But a look on the English vocabulary the other languages are using is, in fact, pretty interesting. Because that's nothing related to the commonly used English words. It's just another set, "chosen" by the other languages naturally. Weird, no?Not so much, but for example, if technology words are often taken straight away from English, French people wouldn't know what means "in time" (à temps, in French), but would probably understand "time out" (temps écoulé). In the same way, "hot" is often used in French (generally with a sexual connotation, careful), but if you say cool is cold, it is less known.A weird phenomenon, uh?
